Independent Film Festival Boston Unveils Full 2015 Film Lineup

iffb

The full film list for IFF Boston 2015 has been revealed.

In a newsletter to supporters and previous attendees on March 31, Independent Film Festival Boston revealed their opening & closing night films as well as their full narrative and documentary feature lineup. All of their films will play between April 22 and April 29.

Kicking off the festival this year will be the Sundance hit, The End of the Tour, directed by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now). The End of the Tour recounts journalist David Lipsky’s travels and conversations with enigmatic author David Foster Wallace during a promotional book tour. Lipsky will be played by Jesse Eisenberg, who starred in The Double which played last year at IFF. Wallace will be played by Jason Segel and director David Ponsoldt will be in attendance on opening night.

Closing out the festival will be another Sundance hit that won both Grand Jury Prize and the coveted Audience Award by the name of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, the story follows Greg Gaines’ (Thomas Mann) relationship with Rachel (Olivia Cooke), a girl who has been stricken by cancer. Author of the source material and screenwriter of the film, Jesse Andrews, will be in attendance at this screening as well.

The films themselves are spread throughout Boston at a multitude of the classic theaters the city has to offer. Somerville theater near Davis Square usually hosts most of the films, but Brattle Theater in Cambridge and Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline play some of the most popular films. UMass Boston in Dorchester will be playing some features as well, which I believe did not host anything last year.

You can view the complete list of films appearing at IFF Boston 2015 below and look out for a article detailing our most anticipated on Thursday. The full schedule and ticketing system can be found here.

Although a trailer for the opening night film is not available, we have the preview for the closing night film here for your viewing pleasure.

Sam Cohen

Sam Cohen is that guy you can't have a conversation with without bringing up Michael Mann. He is also incapable of separating himself from his teenage angst (looking at you, Yellowcard). Read on as he tries to formulate words about movies!
